Tips:

..........


For a 1 fl oz or 30ml bottle with a 1.5ml pipet 1 drop being rounded to exactly 0.05mL, use 5 grams cannabis oil to 5 teaspoons alcohol or base oil

- 20 full 1.5ml pipets = 1 fl oz = 30ml bottle

- 20 drops per ml = 30 drops per 1.5ml pipet

- 600 0.05 mL drops = 1 fl oz or 30ml

- 1 gram oil = 1000mg = around .95ml

- around 30 grams oil fit in 1 oz bottle

- 1 teaspoon = around 5ml

- 6 teaspoons = 30ml or 1 fl oz

- 5 grams cannabis oil to 5 teaspoons base = 1 fl oz or around 30ml

- 5 grams cannabis oil = 5000mg = 8.33mg per 0.05ml drop = 249.9mg per 1.5ml pipet

If you don't want to use alcohol as a base, glycerin or any natural oil like coconut oil, grape seed oil, flax seed oil, hemp seed oil, or black cumin oil can be used as an alternative

1oz flowers will generally make 4g - 6g concentrate

Tylenol 3 and Celebrex will block the cabinnonoid receptors
